Today on the show I’m joining Ryan Light for a few easy miles.

Ryan has almost run more races than he can count, ranging in distances from 5ks to full marathons.

But for Ryan, racing is secondary to the benefits that running has had on helping him mentally. Ryan has dealt with OCD and anxiety for most of his life, and in some of his darkest times a friend and runner (that also had issues with anxiety) suggested he try running as a way to help with the symptoms he was dealing with.

In today’s episode, Ryan talks candidly about his struggles with OCD and anxiety, how running has helped change his focus to something that is positive, and how that change of focus his literally changed his life.

He also offers some words of advice for those that may be suffering with OCD and anxiety in silence that I think all of us can use when we are dealing with the inevitable rough patches in our lives.

Here are a few of the highlights from our chat. Read more

Feeling Unprepared Before a Race?

Quick Tip: Feeling Unprepared Before a Race

If you’ve run enough races, and run them with a specific time goal in mind, you may have felt unprepared before a race began.

Lord knows I’ve don’t that more than a few times.

How does this happen? But more importantly, when you are feeling unprepared before a race how do you react when the race starts?

I’ve headed to the starting line feeling completely unprepared too many times, yet I’ve been able to run some great times (for me) at those same events.

So what gives?

Here are a few things that I have reminded myself of pre-race: Read more

Diz Runs With… Patricia Lopez


On today’s run, I’m joining Patricia Lopez for a few easy miles. Patricia is a bit unique in that she is a running coach and a yoga instructor. She believes there are many benefits for runners that are able to incorporate regular yoga practice into their training schedule, and I think she’s right.

We talked a lot about the yoga over the course of our conversation, but yoga wasn’t the only subject we talked about. Here are some of the highlights:

  • The imbalances that many runners have.treepose
  • The mental challenge of running.
  • The struggle of slowing down in the fast paced world that we live in.
  • Why being inflexible is a terrible excuse for not doing yoga.
  • Some of the many benefits of yoga–beyond just the stretching.

If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of yoga, I can’t encourage you enough to reach out to Patricia and touch base with her. She is a wealth of knowledge not only in terms of the yoga, but in how the yoga effects your whole body, mind, and soul.
